Thoughts from Elton John’s Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour:
* Thank goodness the people who wanted a roof on Forsyth Barr Stadium prevailed.
It was pouring with rain in Dunedin and it was cold but at least we were dry under the roof.
* The oldies are still the goodies.
The audience had a wide age-range, including people who wouldn’t have been born when Elton started performing 50-odd years ago but young and old were dancing, singing and enjoying themselves.
* Technology enhances the act.
It was a performance on stage and screen that was aurally and visually spectacular.
* More love and compassion.
That was Elton’s message on what the world needs more of and he’s right.
